A heart pacer is presented wherein detection of P-waves from the wave complex is used to control the rate of ventricular stimulation by the pacer, where the control of the rate of the pacer (or the escape interval of the pacer) includes decreasing rates and may also include increasing rates. The pacer of the preferred embodiment is a demand pacer of the R-wave inhibited variety. The circuitry is capable of being implanted within the body of the patient as well as being employed in an external manner.
